The State of History in NSW
Christine Halse et. al., HTANSW, 1997
Paperback, 127 pp.


In 1997, the HTANSW commissioned a the research team from the Faculty of Education at the University of Western Sydney, Nepean to examine the State of History in NSW secondary schools. HTANSW's intent was to gauge the impact of the new junior History syllabus and to investigate the problem of declining numbers in HSC courses.

The State of History examines History education in a wide selection of government and non-government schools across the state. It canvassed the opinions of teachers, students and deputy principals. It examined the curricula, analysed enrolment patterns and provides an informed basis for guiding future decision making in History education in NSW.
